Grady-White 251 CE

Coastal Explorer 251

25′ Coastal Explorer

The 25-foot 251 CE Coastal Explorer center console is in a class by itself, a surpassing answer to other larger shallow water boats. Notably, the 251 is created for inshore use primarily as a sport fishing boat and offers more offshore, rough water capability than any bay boat. Here’s the best answer to off-the-beaten-track family fun and versatility.

2019 Grady-White Coastal Explorer

Fantastic boat with exceptional ride and build quality! Has Coastal Fog Blue hull sides, hard top, trolling motor prep and factory Yamaha White 300. Boat looks superb and I receive frequent compliments. It is very quick to plane, tracks well and is amazingly dry . It works great around Tampa Bay and even off-shore for King fishing during reasonable conditions. My Grady White dealer installed Garmin electronics, trolling motor and power pole. Highly Recommended!

Coastal Explorer 251

Simply Exceptional

Over the course of my life I have bought many items of value. Homes, cars, motorcycles, ATV’s, you name it. These purchases ran the gamut from top brands such as Mercedes, BMW, Infiniti, Audi, Boston Whaler and Harley Davidson. Without question, my recent purchase of a Grady White Boat has been absolutely the best experience of my entire consumer experience. Hats off to an EXCEPTIONAL company and local dealer (Atlantic Marine) !!!

New Grady-White 251 Coastal Explorer

I am a Wilmington, NC native having been born and raised here when Wilmington was still a sleepy town at the end of the world in Southeastern NC. I recently purchased a new Grady and am more than tickled with the boat, dealer and everything included with a new purchase. I highly recommend this boat to anyone living in the Coastal waters of NC or SC. The boat and the way I have been treated is second to anything I have ever purchased in almost 60 years. Get your Grady at Atlantic Marine.
